Modern Art at it best!
It was incredible, visually overwhelming and stimulating at the same time. I felt so happy and lucky to see pieces of art from a variety of artists that I had adored and followed for years. This are just some of them:
Cindy Sherman conceptual portraits. She becomes characters and takes photographs of herself as this characters.
Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese artist known for her obsessive repetition of patterns. She suffers from mental illness since childhood and believe that her art comes from her hallucinations. Marc Jacobs recreated her dots in his Louis Vuitton 2008 purses.
Nick Cave (the artist not the singer) is an American artist and performer. He credits his modest upbringing in the use and assembling of found objects in his art. He is the creator of full body soundsuits which are made from layers of metal, plastic, hair and other found objects. He also creates colorful hairy and fabric suits and intricate sculptures
Yinka Shonibare is a British born (raise in Nigeria) artist known for his exploration of colonialism and the use of bright colored fabrics. Sometimes he paints himself as a rich aristocrat. He is partially disable
Vik Muniz is Brazilian artist that lives in New York City, he is known for working with "non-art" materials like parts of cars, diamonds, caviar and garbage. This piece is call "Nail Fetish" and its carved basswood, old
nails, cloth and strings
The great Keith Haring, artist and social activist. I remember reading about his chalk drawings in the New York subways when I was at University of Puerto Rico as well as seen his work on Grace Jones "I'm not Perfect" video. His work was very popular when he was alive and has gotten even more popular after his death
Kehinde Wiley a new york artist that paints young African-American men in traditionally female poses.
His paintings are full of classic essence and pop culture references
Robert Indiana work is simple and bold. He incorporates signs, letters, words and numbers to create accessible works of art
